Norman Park (Hayes Lane entrance) car park temporarily closed next week

Published Friday, 29 May 2020

A mobile coronavirus testing facility is returning again to the Norman Park car park accessible via Hayes Lane next week for two days.

Permission to use the car park has been given by the council in support the government’s testing programme, with the army testing facility in operation on Monday 1 June and Tuesday 2 June.  It is also anticipated that the testing facility will be in operation the following week, with future testing dates also envisaged. The same location has been used as a testing facility previously, with the park remaining open and only the car park being closed and used for testing. Suitable signage confirming the new arrangements will be erected as needed, with pedestrian access to the park remaining unchanged.

A Bromley Council spokesman said, “We are happy to keep making the car park area available for testing for as long as is needed and are grateful to park users for their support and understanding. We do need visitors to the park to strictly follow the signs and stay within the marked out pedestrian access for the safety of all concerned, with this being closely monitored. It is likely that there will future testing dates and park users will know about this because of the signage in place on those days.”

In addition to the temporary closure of the car park, the recycling banks in the car park are also temporarily out of use whilst the army operated mobile testing facility is in operation.
